The Granary Gallery, on Old County Road in West Tisbury, is known for the variety of art it displays and the caliber of its participating artists, so it seems most appropriate that it is opening its summer season on Sunday, June 27, with three artists specializing in three different media: wood, watercolor, and film.

David Fokos is celebrating his 10th anniversary as an artist at The Granary. His large format, black and white photographs transcend the confines of the images to rouse the viewer’s awareness and make larger statements about time and natural forms in a way that heightens the experience. On Monday, June 28, at 5:30 pm, Mr. Fokos will speak about his work at the gallery.

Wendy Lichtensteiger learned technique and craft from her father Lance, who designed and carved wildlife for close to 30 years. Using American wormy chestnut, she creates hand-carved sculptures of shore birds and animals in meticulous detail, color and gesture.

Watercolor painter Preston McAdoo, whose family created the McAdoo pictorial hooked rugs, interprets images of trees, boats, water, fish, and other natural scenes in a way that moves representational toward abstract. Using color and design elements, his paintings express light and energy in a rather unique and joyful style.

The Granary Gallery artists reception is Sunday, June 27, 5 to 7pm at 636 Old County Rd., West Tisbury. 508-693-0455.
